Boggy Creek was a USDA-certified organic urban farm before it was trendy to be one. Turn in at the big, red tomato sign at an unassuming driveway on the near Eastside, and you'll find hen houses, a farmhouse from the 1840s, and five acres of earthly bounty. The market stand is modest but stocked with local artisanal items and the farm's own produce harvested from either these fields or Boggy Creek's small sister farm outside Gause. Owners Larry and Carol Ann Sayle have built a small culture around their labor of love with an engaging website and blog, seasonal recipes, and even a children's book based on their chickens.
